Ivanka Trump has lived her life in the public eye.
Born to then real-estate mogul Donald Trump and model Ivana Trump, his first wife, she is now the president’s oldest (and favorite) daughter.
The 37-year-old has been a business executive, runway model, socialite, doting mother, and now key adviser in her father’s White House.
Here’s a look back at her life:
Ivana Trump was born in Manhattan on October 30, 1981. “Ivanka” is actually a nickname for her real name, which is the same as her mother’s.

She is the middle child of Donald’s first wife, Ivana, who was born in Czechoslovakia.

In addition to helping run the Trump Organization, Ivanka launched a jewelry collection in 2007, and created her own fashion and lifestyle brand, The Ivanka Trump Collection, shortly thereafter.

Ivanka is an early riser, usually beginning work by 6:30 a.m. People describe her as friendly, polished, eloquent, capable, and even a bit intimidating. She admits she has “a big ego,” like her father.

She has always been extremely close with her father. When Ivanka was little, he used to brag to high-powered executives about how smart she was. And he never ignores her phone calls.
